The 2nd General Assembly Meeting of the EU FP7 project RISC-KIT (Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts - toolKIT) was held in Cambridge UK, during the 8th and 9th of May 2014. The meeting, that was held in the facilities of the UCAM-CCRU University of Cambridge, Cambridge Coastal Research Unit, was attended from more than 40 European interdisciplinary scientists, coming from the 18 partners forming the project’s Consortium, as well as from the International Expert Board, coming from Europe, USA and Australia.

 

The attendees had the opportunity to receive information about the progress of the research goals of the project, regarding the initial steps of the development of the modelling tools, the vulnerability indicators and the interconnected socio-economic analysis of hazardous coastal systems. Additionally, the International Expert Board provided variant presentations on risk management and modelling related fields, as well as valuable comments on RISC-KIT's progress and first deliverables. The meeting was concluded with discussions of the Consortium regarding the best appropriate ways to achieve the project’s goals with efficiency and the organization of future work and milestones.
